Aiguille Pourrie from Col Cornu. Nice easy short ski tour if you are pushed for time with great Mont Blanc views and a fun descent back to the liaison Brevent/Flegere cable car. A good one to do if you're looking for a shaded north facing descent. https://youtu.be/4GxHf-7llHg

'A day in the mountains' as we called it. By the time we got up and started … Continue reading Col du Trident
January was full of many good days, some so good we completely forgot to take photos but here's a small selection. Thanks for the good times!
